I cant wait to see how things pan out for you and how you get it done. I will be following you on this so please keep this updated.

Jaxon Ok Troopers, the dream officialy starts on the 16th December as I have just booked my flight to Bali where I will be spending Xmas and NYs. Then I'm off to Tagaytay in the Phillipines for a little bit. I should begin my travel blog now but I still have other sites to set up. Hmmm.. so much to do and so little time!
omba very interested, though dont think il be able to travel till summertime though-maybe I can during winter break
Jaxon That's ok, just play it by ear, it's the best way to be :-)

Lauren Hey Jaxon, great trip! Love your attitude. Todd and I (co-founders of Globetrooper) have been travelling since June 2010. We're in Berlin for the next couple of months and plan to be back in Sydney/Canberra, Australia in March next year. So let us know if you decide to check out the east coast, it would be great to meet up.
Jaxon Hi Lauren, I am actually from Sydney, moved to Perth a few months ago for a bit of a sea change. As nice as the place is, Perth isn't somewhere I can stay for too long because time goes backwards here if you know what I mean! No doubt we will cross paths at some stage in the future. Great website by the way, love it!

Lauren Thanks. Maybe you should consider Chiang Mai in Thailand? There are many travel bloggers always coming in and out of there. I bet that's the real hub spot compared to anywhere else in the world. Otherwise Europe, as it's so easy to hop across the border to meet up or go to a conference.

Jaxon That's not a bad idea actually. I was in CM for the Thai New Years water festival back in 2008 and had an amazing time. I'll very likely find myself there at some stage in the next 12 months.

Tripchick Sorry, Scott, but I've only traveled in Israel and that was in 1987. I lived there for 3 monhs. But since you're not a young woman, my warnings would not apply to you in Israel anyway (you're lucky!).
